What Others Say About CPE

"It's a pleasure to say that the work of the CPE staff has been impeccable for all of my programs, which have averaged two a year for the past 25 years. Since retiring from the university, there's no doubt that my continuing education programs with CPE have been a key element to my continuing opportunities for consulting as an expert."
